    IT/Digital Role Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Anglo American.

    Interview

    I was approached by an offshore-based recruiter to interview for a role that is identical to one I do now for another Fortune 100 company. The recruiter was late for our call and did not seem to be well prepared in terms of his understanding of the position or the needs of the hiring manager. He asked one or two questions, did not make much of an effort to probe my experience, and ended the call after about five minutes. It felt like a superficial process, and from the point of view of the applicant, not terribly respectful.

    Interview

    Was a long drawn out process. Was a little disappointed with lack of feedback. Video interview and phone screening questions were very similarly asked (if not the same).

    Principal Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    For London, a lady from HR does a screening phone call. She clearly has no idea what she is talking about, but she obviously thinks she deeply understands machine learning.
    According to her ML knowledge, I don't have the skills. Since she does not understand the algorithms behind, she cannot see any knowledge transfer! It's the first time in all my experience (6 yrs) that I have not passed the screening call phase. It's really not a serious process if the only person looking through and filtering CVs is an HR person who overestimates her understanding of machine learning.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Anglo American (Cape Town (South Africa)) in July 2019.

    Interview

    The montage one way interview is not accommodating to those without a laptop or smart phone. However the online interview was very interesting. I would love for it to be changed to a telephonic interview though. Eskom Power cuts interfered with my interview 6 time.
